I am so thankful that the Lord led me to Dr. Anderson and Longevity Health Center. I truly believe they have saved my life. I had been sick for almost two years with symptoms that affected every system in my body. I had chronic stomach issues, skin conditions, severe joint and muscle pain, headaches, chronic fatigue and major fluid retention. I had been to numerous specialists and had gone through several surgical scopes, a surgical muscle biopsy, painful nerve conduction testing, multiple MRI’s, CT scans, and blood tests, all to no avail. I was getting sicker and had no answer as to why. I was on many prescription drugs and was continually offered more and more to try and control the symptoms. I had to quit my job as a Kindergarten teacher. I spent most of my days in bed, losing the life that I once knew, which was that of an active mother, teacher and avid runner. But through the grace of God, a friend suggested that I travel from Alabama to Georgia to see Dr. Anderson.
Every aspect of my experience with Dr. Anderson’s office has been wonderful. From the friendly and helpful ladies on the phone to everyone I came in contact with at the office during my visits. They worked together to help care for me. Dr. Anderson told me on the first visit that he would find the source of my problems and not just treat the symptoms. That was music to my ears!! With his testing, he found multiple issues going on in my body. I explain it to others by saying that it was a perfect storm that led to a really sick body! He made a detox plan and started me on my journey to healing with natural remedies and holistic medicines. For the first time in a long while, I had Hope. Hope that I would get well and that I could regain the life I had once lived.
After only 2 weeks on the plan, I was able to get off of my reflux medication and anti-depressant. Both of which I had been on for 10 years. I was able to get off of the other prescription drugs too. By the end of the first month, which was the end of January, I was already starting to feel better and more like myself. By the end of the second month, I was able to go buy groceries for my family and do laundry and housework. I was spending less and less time in bed. At the end of the fourth month of my wellness journey, I walked a 5K with my family. It was such a victory! I had signed up for the race back in January after my initial visit, just in faith, that by the end of April, I would be able to walk the 5K. My family and I praised God that day as we walked, thanking Him that I was alive and able to walk that far without pain! My new goal is to run that same race next year!! I am continuing to heal and to detox and even though I still have days that I feel bad, I just praise God for how far I’ve come and that the good days now outweigh the bad.
Through the help of Dr. Anderson and his staff at Longevity Health Center, my life has taken a new turn. My family is now eating healthy and organic and we are taking a natural approach to healing. My daughter has also become a patient of Dr. Anderson’s. I am happy to report that after 2 years of chronic stomach issues, she is pain-free! Praise the Lord!
